Censor Board to begin burning of pornography films in Nigeria

The National Film and Video Censor Board, NFVCB says it will by November 25th  embark on massive seizure and burning of pornography films and unclassified DVDs across the country.

Executive Director of the board, Alh. Adedayo Thomas disclosed this when Culture, Arts Tourism and Entertainment Writers Association Abuja, CATEWAA paid him a courtesy visit in his office. He said they were embarking on the campaign against piracy because such unclassified items were responsible for the death of our local artists.

Thomas said the destruction which is starting from Abuja to other zones had already recorded lots of massively seizures of pirated foreign films and films said the items have no trace of intellectual property of the owners, hence the decision to embark on burning them now.

‘‘This collaboration is to principally develop the national Films and Video Censors Board. The Film industry has more than 200 Gilds, less than 15 are functioning.  It was when I came in we were able to resolve crisis in Actor Guild of Nigeria.

‘‘I invite you to the burning of Pornography and unclassified works that will come up on 25th of November at yet to be named location. We are still doing the counting of the cost but is a huge lot. ‘‘We are starting from Abuja, then other zones. We have a lot massively seized, which we are doing the burning now.

‘‘We have embarked on all foreign films, they are illegal, it is stolen of intellectual property rights. The only foreign films that we confirm from the original owners are the ones in Cinemas. All two and three in one are not classified or censored. We have embarked on massive seizure operations.’’
